Fox News Viewers Are The Most Misinformed: Study

“A small history lesson on what progressives have brought to the table in the form of advancements over the decades. A small sampling:

Fair working conditions
Child Labor Laws
Vacations
40 hour work week
Last but not least and also my favorite:
The Weekend

I will not attempt to confront any of the more outlandish claims in any of these threads. What I see here is that facts are dismissed, and more often than not, posters insulted. For no good reason, other than the insulters disagree with them. Therefore, discourse cannot be expected.”

“Never been unemployed have you? Never had to compete with four other people for the same job, when your experience "overqualifies" you for the job? Never had to cash out the savings and the 401K in order to keep the house, only to lose it anyway?

Your attitude is truly pathetic. May you never have to look for help and find only people like yourself - you'll starve. Generosity is a virtue which pays in many ways. Try it some time.”

She decided to make this an issue after a cross-dressing friend from Iowa was suspended for wearing dresses to school and demanding to use the girl’s restroom. She told her friends that she was going to try to start something by acting as if she was going to wear a tuxedo and bring a girl to the prom. The truth is SHE DID IT FOR THE MONEY!!”

“See if you can grasp this: the judge would have ordered the school to reinstate the PUBLIC prom but relied on the assurance that Constance would be invited to "the prom" being planned outside the school. In other words the judge was tricked.

They don't tend to enjoy being tricked.

The parents and kids are not on the hook, but the school certainly is. Contempt of court or something like that. The second the school learned of the fake, they should have reinstated their prom.”

“Here is a clue we have people known as psychologist and psychiatrist. They actually study the subject professionally. They tell us that there is no therapy that is affective at changing a persons gender identification none zero nada. So if the professionals can't get a person to change their "choice" then it is not actually a choice. Your silly example even if true is just showing how desperate teenagers are to fit in and as such how wrong it is for the adults to torment kids for being perceived as being different. The law says it's wrong, common decency says it's wrong and the bible tells us how Jesus feels about self righteous rock throwers and inclusion. This is nothing more than nastiness on the part of fools that mistakenly believe they are better than other people.”

“I am a gay man from Alabama and can testify that the South is full of bigotry and hate for gay people and for a wide range of other minorities. This region is deeply different from the rest of the country; people around here are casually and hypocritically sanctimonious in a way that is simply not common in other regions. I definitely think that that poor girl needs to get out of Mississippi, for exactly the same reasons that I will be leaving Alabama in a few months.

While there is a progressive movement in the South, and while this region has made some progress (fewer lynchings, no slavery), it is still a cultural backwater full of vitriol and religious mania.”

There are people like how I have described like that EVERYWHERE, in every country, that are abject failures, that think they are better than other people by DEFAULT! Only because of there skin colour, religion, sexual orientation, wealth... and on and on... they think they have the right to act superior. It is only through our accomplishments and what we make of them that truely define our greatness!”

“How completely illogical. First of all we are not talking about a lifestyle choice. That is simply false and belongs on the same shelf as the flat earth also promoted by religious authority. Beyond that you insist that she does not have the right to live as herself but you do. Bigotry is so obvious to every one but the bigots; I suppose it's a lot like stink in that regard.”

“All this girl is doing is trying to get money. She did not show up to the prom until an hour and a half after it had started. The other party was held by a parent for their daughter and the daughter invited the people she wanted to. I am from Fulton and I am sick of the bigotry, hatred, and intolerance spouted toward students that disagree with this girl’s lifestyle. It is a violation of their rights to be forced to go to a prom just because her feelings are hurt. I guess the next time I have my daughter’s birthday party I had better invite to entire state or I might be sued.”

“Is a learning disability a lifestyle choice? Because the other students at the fake prom included two students with learning disabilities. So, you think it is all right for those high school students and their parents, and the school administrators to discriminate against anyone who is different?
And as far as your daughter's birthday party is concerned, if you invited her classmates, you should invite all of them, not just a select few. But I don't expect you to understand that.”

“Thank you for posting. Many of us here were wondering how the people of Fulton were justifying their treatment of Constance and the learning disabled students and now we know. What do feelings matter when they're not yours?

And what a popular girl this "daughter" must be. Friends with the administrators and teachers who chaperoned, and all but six of her classmates.

Throwing words like "ignorance, bigotry and hatred" around doesn't make it true. People are shocked and horrified that an entire town would go to such lengths to exclude those who are different, including two learning disabled children.

By the way, Constance's "lifestyle," is no different than the lifestyle of anyone else in that pit of hatred and plain meanness you call a community. The only difference is who she loves. Imagine that, a town full of "Christians" hating someone and punishing her over love.

It's nice to see you all are working on getting your stories straight though. That will come in handy when going in front of the judge.”

“Nice attempt to leap with a fake analogy and complaint. See if you can follow this: PUBLIC high school, for ALL kids.BY LAW. Public high school has prom.

Riverman on Apr 6, 2010 at 09:51:30

“The lengths you go to trying to justify bigotry are amazing. You claim that the hateful bigots are being subjected to bigotry. I see in your logic a bigot has a right to be a bigot so anyone rejecting that bigotry is now a new kind of bigot. The kind that does not have the right to their bigotry. What a nasty little town this must be. This is not just stupid this is truly shameful. Your reference to "her life style" shows that you are completely ignorant and your belief system flows entirely from that school that gave us a flat earth, a sun that revolves around the earth, witch burning, the inquisition and slavery for a partial list.”

“If your daughter's birthday was a public event, and her home life was paid for with public money, then yes, you could be sued for keeping out the undesirables. Otherwise, you're a hateful bigot who can't see your majority privilege.

It doesn't matter if other people agree or disagree with her lifestyle -- it's hers, not theirs. I could understand their wanting to protect themselves or their children if this girl was out there trying to pick up straight girls, but she's not. She has a girlfriend and wants to attend the dance just like anyone else.
